Abundance....of pictures

Hello, hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend. Something a little different to share today. I've been in Copic coloring funk and can't seem to color anything right lately. I've been busy though with my new obsession...making chipboard albums and some altered art. The Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week is "Show a Word". I bought this paper mache letter "B" last week at Joann's Fabrics and immediately thought...7 Gypsies Lille collection would be perfect for this. I cut up several different sheets and glued them on with Zip Dry, then used some Martha Stewart Decoupage to cover it with after I did some sanding on the edges and VP distress ink.

I added this cute little clipboard I found at AC Moore. Used some distress inks and added some 7 Gypsies and Tim Holtz embellies. The clock is a Tim Holtz stamp, stamped in Barn Door and covered with Glossy Accents. The tag desgin was made by accident. I meant to distress with my sponge applicator but picked up the stamp pad instead and pressed down before I realized what I was doing (Watching TV and crafting will do this). Well I just decided to go with it and keep pressing the stamp pad down in random spots.

Some more views.

This was so much fun to make. I plan to do more like this. I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by and have a safe and fun 4th of July!
